A $30 million Series B investment round was completed by speciality coffee company Blue Tokai Coffee Roasters at an undisclosed valuation. A91 Partners, together with other pre-existing investors like Grand Anicut Fund and 8i Ventures, led the investment.

Matt Chitharanjan and Namrata Asthana established Blue Tokai Coffee Roasters in 2013 as a roastery. In major Indian cities and regions, including Delhi-NCR, Mumbai, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Chandigarh, Mohali, and Pune, the brand now has four roasteries and more than 60 physical locations. Additionally, it operates internationally from Japan.
